synonyms and antonyms and categories and subcategories.

Materials needed:

• Copy of Beach Is To Fun: A Book of Relationships by Pat Brisson

• One set of analogy dominoes for each pair of students (See following pages for

Assessment Activity Title: Analogy Dominoes

Description of Activity:

1. Introduce the lesson on analogies by reading the book Beach Is To Fun: A

Book of Relationships by Pat Brisson.

2. Review the analogies in the book and discuss with students the definition

of an analogy.

3. Talk about the terms/symbols used to show analogies. Place some

examples on the board and discuss the relationships.

4. Have students give additional analogies and place these on the board.

5. Distribute the analogy domino sets, one set per pair of students.

6. Ask students to match the dominoes by relationship of the analogy.

7. The first domino will begin with the word Start. Have students continue

matching the relationships (analogies) until they come to the last card with

the word End.

8. Review the relationships as a class and discuss what the relationship is

between each set of words.
Assignment Extensions:

Have student pairs create their own game of dominoes using other concepts

studied. Give students a blank domino pattern to create their game. Let them

share these with others in the class.

Analogy Dominoes

•Connect the following cards by matching the words with their relationships. The first card should be labeled START and the other words should create a chain of words/definitions until the END card.

•When cutting the cards apart, be sure two blocks are included on each card like the two parts of a domino. (column 1 and 2 together – column 3 and 4 together)

•This can be a timed activity. Pairs of students can compete against each other or against their previous time.
